  19. I have joined this group and I'm so excited about it. I have spent ages trawling the net trying to locate other UK crafters and there you all are, all in one place - somewhere I belong, finally!!


I know. I'm sorry. I hate these word recognition, are you a robot, guff things too, but having just got rid of a large number of ungrammatical and poorly spelt adverts for all sorts of things I don't want, and especially don't want on my blog, I'm hoping that this will mean that only lovely people, of the actually a person variety, will comment.

So please do. Comments are great...
